System administrators are blamed for everything. Think about it...How many Monday's have you barely walked in the door, only to find the production system is in trouble and management is in your office screaming. You then learn a change was implemented over the weekend, one where your systems team was blindsided…Just Perfect...Happy Monday. Whether it is a hardware change, software change, or network related, it is vital for system admins, application programmers, and especially IT management to understand the impact of ALL changes to the system / environment.

Learning Objectives:

In this session you will learn:

1) The methodologies to do powerful What's Different Analysis for all critical performance metrics.
2) The mission critical performance management tasks that most system admins fail to every month.
3) How to change your IT performance management culture from a "reactive" mode to a successful "proactive" mode.
4) How to measure the impact of memory tuning changes.
5) How to measure the impact of Capacity Planning projects when the upgrade didn’t go as planned.
